Sunday Seven


Learn how to accept a compliment. Some 88% of folks feel valued when they receive recognition, but 70% are embarrassed when they get it, per a study.

💰 Finance
21 investments for the rest of 2021, per Kiplinger.


💼 Portfolio Career
Catherine Aguilar was frustrated with the glass ceiling she experienced at her corporate job. So she started a second career simultaneously. Here’s how.


📚 Books
Read The Silo Effect by Gillian Tett, a journalist who wonders why people and institutions sometimes act so stupidly. Answer: because we don’t have the full picture. Information is stove piped. This book can help you bust through the silos.


🎵 Music

Listen to Beautiful Minds by Sarah Partridge. Every song on this jazz album is inspired by women who have excelled in sciences. My favorite song is “Sky Sweeper” inspired by astronomer Maria Mitchell.

📽️ Film

Watch After Innocence, directed by Jessica Sanders. A gripping, emotionally charged film that follows wrongfully convicted men freed by DNA evidence after decades in prison as they struggle to transition back into society. Learn about Jessica in our interview.

    Very happy to see you recognize Jessica Sanders. She’s an amazing documentary film director and good friend from college. Definitely someone whose films one should follow. She’ll continue to shine a light on/raise awareness of critical domestic/global issues.

    Hope all’s well! I’m enjoying reading these lists.

      Hi Bill, thanks for reading. Such a small world. Jessica is a remarkable filmmaker, and I can’t wait to see her new short film, too. Thanks for the feedback!
